A podcast that explores the intersection of anti-vaccine beliefs, technology, and politics. We report on how misinformation, disinformation and fake news are constructed and how they spread.

We look for examples of people who successfully navigate misinformation. The show is hosted by Eva von Schaper and Daiva Repeckaite, journalists ...

Disinformation warfare is not new to the Baltic States - and they have been boosting their preparedness since 2014 and were lauded as successful.

As part of our data investigation, we took a look at politicians' tweets in the Netherlands.

We talked to Erin Jenne, an expert on topics…

The tiny island of Malta is an overachiever in curbing the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Politico.

After a wave of protests against vaccines and vaccine mandates in Europe, it is clear that despite very different policies across Europe, anti-vaccination movements that oppose them are remarkably alike.

Across Europe, some countries are about to finish vaccinating the most vulnerable residents against COVID-19.

Big yikes! Liz Cheney won’t get on board with Trump’s Big Lie so Republicans voted her out of leadership. Is it possible to bring the conspiracy theorists in our lives back to reality before anyone is further radicalized? The key is seeking to understand their view and speaking with respect so it’s easier for them to change their minds in the futur…
 
In this episode, we took a look at how the Russian government and its media networks used their power and reach to discredit Covid vaccines made by Western companies and how it boosted its own Sputnik V Covid jab -- and how this might backfire.

Accountability is good, but it’s not a substitute for policy changes. Could it be that training armed agents of the state to view certain communities as war zones and giving them military-grade equipment isn’t actually keeping us safe? For 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant and the hundreds of other Americans murdered by police in 2021 we’ll keep fighting …
 
On April 19, 1995 Army veteran Timothy McVeigh detonated two tons of explosives planted in a truck outside the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.

Aggressive political networks, associations of concerned parents and even state-affiliated media - many actors have been found to share misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccines currently used in the EU. "Oxford seems to have created a vaccine for monkeys," a host on Rossiya 1 channel said in September. Why are they doing this? And how can we meas…
 
I have a wacky idea - what if stopped electing religious extremists who are deeply threatened by girls who f*ck? If Roe v. Wade falls (and it might!) it won’t end abortion, but it will turn some states into abortion havens and others into abortion wastelands. You can really choose your own dystopian adventure of conservative male power and control!…

Donate early money to unseat the 20 Republican…
